Wellington needs a more powerful image from its beautification to new development that’s the message coming from a number of candidates entering the council race for 2012.
“The image of our town has to be lifted from all aspects,” Terry Dray told the Times.
“We have to be proactive on economic development which means social development,” Alison Conn says.
“The time is right to get the town positive again,” Pip Smith believes while another farmer Lindsay Hough says Wellington has to grow or it faces a dire future while Roger Everett is returning to seek people’s approval because he believes the district has gone backwards and has to clean up its outside perceptions.
“There is not enough happening of a positive nature. Nothing of substance,” he said.
It’s a message also hammered home by a number of other candidates who believe they can change the future direction of the town through their election.
“We can do better,” Rod Buhr believes, while Barry Jeffrey and Ian Giffin support the push for more development and tourism ideals.
